A new website has generated more than £50,000 in new orders for a client of Middlesbrough creative design agency E-Strands.

The website for ESCS (www.es-cs.com,) a Teesside-based world leader in industrial and protective coatings equipment brought in orders for the company’s application systems only days after it went live, leading ESCS to start the search for a new apprentice.

E-Strands has now been appointed to do further work on ESCS’s website and produce other marketing materials for the firm.

Based in Middlesbrough, with an office in Houston, and distributors in Singapore, Malaysia and China, ESCS manufactures specialist spray equipment for protective and industrial coatings. These include the application of intumescent epoxy materials which protect steel structures from the threat of fire in oil and gas refineries, petrochemical plants, fabrication yards and oil rigs. More than 80% of its production is exported.

Managing director of ESCS Shaun McDonald said: “Not only has E-Strands produced a website which has immediately delivered orders, the team has also helped us rebrand the company, with a new logo and cleaner look and has been invaluable in providing us with marketing, communications and business advice. I am very happy with what they have done for use, and look forward to continuing to work with them as our company grows around the world.

“The new orders mean that we are now looking to take on an apprentice, and if our growth continues at this rate, to employ a further two workers.”

Michael Janes, E-Strands’ managing director said: “I am delighted with the success we have already achieved for ESCS. We are passionate about providing high quality design, branding and corporate communication which impacts on our clients’ bottom line.”
